Sometimes a song just smacks you in the gut. These are the lyrics from the title track from Eric Clapton’ s “Pilgrim.” Released March 10, 1998.

Simon Climie & Eric Clapton (c) ASCAP 1997.

And how do I choose and where do I draw the line
Between truth and necessary pain?
And how do I know and where do I get my belief
That things will be all right again?

What words do I use to try and explain
To those who’ve witnessed all my tears?
And what does it mean to know all these things
When love’s been wasted all these years?
When love’s been wasted all these years?

Standin’ in the shadows
With my heart right in my hand
Removed from all the people
Who could never understand

I was a pilgrim for your love
A pilgrim for your love
A pilgrim for your love
I was a pilgrim for your love

It’s like livin’ in a nightmare
Like lookin’ in the blackest hole
Like standin’ on the edge of nothing
Completly out of control

Now where have I been all these years
And how come I just couldn’t see?
Like a blind man walking ’round in darkness
I was a pilgrim for your love
I was a pilgrim for your love

Standin’ in the shadows
With my heart right in my hand
Removed from all the people
Who could never understand

Standin’ in the shadows
With my heart right in my hand
Removed from all the people
Who could never understand

I was a pilgrim for your love
Pilgrim for your love
I was a pilgrim for your love
A pilgrim for your love

I was a pilgrim for your love
A pilgrim for your love
I was a pilgrim
Pilgrim for your love
